Stephen Curry (PG) vs. Lauri Markkanen (PF)

Stephen Curry comes into this matchup playing at an MVP level for the Warriors, appearing in 47 of the team’s 50 games and starting all those contests. He plays heavy minutes at 33.4 per game and sits second in the NBA at 28.1 points per outing. Though he doesn’t crash the boards often, evidenced by his 0.5 offensive rebounds, Curry contributes in other areas like playmaking where he averages 4.8 assists to just 3 turnovers. His shooting splits are outstanding at 47% from the field, 38% from three and 79% at the charity stripe. Curry’s offensive gravity helps Golden State boast the league’s 3rd ranked offense.

As Utah’s featured scorer, Lauri Markkanen has started all 43 games he’s appeared in at nearly 33 minutes a night. He leads the Jazz at 23.7 points per game on solid 47% overall shooting, chipping in 8.5 rebounds with 2.3 per contest coming on the offensive glass. Markkanen does damage inside and out, attempting nearly 5 three-point shots per game while hitting 36% of them. He also shoots well from the line at 82% and boasts a pristine 1.5 assist to turnover ratio. While not the distributor Curry is, Markkanen’s versatility causes mismatches and allows Utah to leverage his size advantage at the power forward spot.

This matchup features two lethal scorers at different positions capable of going off on any given night. While Curry gets more headlines, Markkanen has quietly emerged as the focal point of Utah’s attack. Expect both players to make their presence felt offensively in what could turn into a high-scoring shootout at the Delta Center.

Warriors’ Statistical Prowess

Golden State Warriors’ high-octane offense averages 119 points per game with a 47.4 field goal percentage and features Stephen Curry as their leader, scoring an average of 14.9 three-point field goals per game from beyond the arc. Their defensive metrics may cause concern against disciplined Jazz teams with whom they could potentially tangle on defense.

Jazz’s Balanced Attack

Utah Jazz have an average scoring output of 117.8 points per game and boast a 47.1 field goal percentage, led by Markkanen’s leadership on offense and supported by collective rebounding prowess that tied with Warriors at 46.7 rebounds per game despite offensive efficiency; however, their higher turnover rate (15.1 per game) may present challenges that Warriors’ dynamic offense could take advantage of.
